I use a 900+ dps fist with CD and CD socket for a main hand, and a 700+ dps, dex, CD plus 500 Loh socket gem offhand and it takes me a run around during Azmodan to kill him. I switched offhand to a WKL with 700+ dps, dex, LS, and CD socket and I kill him before black pools drop.
The dps is a drop when I switch out the weps, but I notice bigger crits and faster health bar drop using WKL. I use the typical monk build and am at 60k dps. I'm sure the effect of this weapon is more noticed by players with higher CD (400ish) and high crit (45-50).
Somewhat more importantly I notice better health regen with the 2.5% LS on the WKL over the 500 LoH on the other offhand mentioned above. All in all, even being a 700 dps offhand, I still kill azomdan before he can drop black pools, making it worth it to go down and kill him.

Naa that's ok, I found a 944 dps fist with 85% crit dam, 10% att spd inc and a socket for cheap, what I need now is an Inna's chest and helm for the + 130 dex, and then Natalya's boots and ring for the 7% crit. Too bad this will cost a fortune.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary

So i've been playing D3 since release as a monk so I know the in's and out's of the class fairly well. I am farming Act 3 will ease but I am wondering how to really increase my dps without buying ludicrously expensive gear. I read lots of mink forums and what not and see these monks with asininely high dps (100k, 130k) and they don't have much more dex/crit/crit dam than I do. I do notice their weapons have much higher dps than mine. I am wondering if this is the cause of my mid range dps. I can get it up to 83kish with all my buffs going but thats still all buffed up.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
some of my gear is left over from a physical resist set I was running earlier, like my amulet, but an equal replacement is absurdly costly.
401% crit dam
My survival stats are good enough to only need a self heal, health pot and random health globes for most packs and mobs. When I need more I just use the Won Kihm Lau over there with 2.5% LS and loh gem and the shield. I did have an Andariel's visage drop with loads of dps increases but no vit or resists, so that was just sold.
I am wondering if i should drop some crit dam for attack speed or if I really just need weps with closer to 1k dps on them. I have tried various dps spreadsheets but they don't seem to really give me any good answer on huge dps increases from my current state.
Thanks for the suggestions if you have any, this is just curiosity on how to get to ~100k dps to make runs faster and more rewarding.
